Add me to the list of (mostly) silent users of your plugins, going back to the original Xbox days. I had very few problems over the years, but when I did, I could mostly figure it out with searching through old messages, or posting my own message here or there.
I think you've been more than generous with your time and patience, and it's sad to see a few people ruin it for so many. I think you're right about things like Ebay sales of ATV2 advertising ""Free Hulu!" bringing in, well, the lowest common denominator.
XBMC has gotten easier to install and use on different devices over the years, and that seems to have its pros and cons. The XBMC community used to be full of people who were willing (and expected) to have to tweak settings, do updates, etc to keep things working. Now a lot of the difficulty is gone (XBMC mostly "just works" for a lot of people = good thing) but that means you have less technical people who expect to plug in the ATV2 and watch Hulu within 20 minutes. If something goes wrong, they don't (can't?) even take the time to search for help before asking.
OK, rant over. Hope to hear more about what it might take to be part of any invite-only future development on your addons, BlueCop.

Thanks, a restart of XBMC seemed to do it. I will be switching to Eden soon, let me know if you'd like more testing in the private repo.

I have been a completely silent user of your services. I understand why you are doing what you are doing. I wonder if there is a way those of us who were not posting,but still able to use your work, which included finding the answers that were available, can still get access to the private party. Maybe having a test of some sort, showing that they know how to search/research, when giving the right answer they can be invited. If you go strictly off of posts here, people like me would be excluded, just because we've never needed to post.
Thanks for the great tools,while we had them. I have been out of town for work, and I am really hoping my wife went in to xbmc at some point and update...

Without your postings and sharing your hard work and knowledge base so many of us would have never attempted to install XBMC on our ipads and ATV's....You have been extremely helpful and responsive to questions..I hope to be able to continue to be a part of any community or forum that you will call home....

I'm in the same boat as this user. I've been part of other types of testing. I am capable of searching,reading and trouble shooting from other peoples problems without posting

If you have bitchers and complainers, screw them. You're doing the right thing. Too many people grab on to a free ride and then want more and more. Sorry to see this proggy go, but I don't blame yu, its the jerks who want to be spoon fed and always ask for more that screw it up for the rest of us.
Go private and keep things the way you want them...more power to ya.

I hope those miserable, ungrateful d-bags see this and realize who they are and what they have done. Thanks for ruining it for everyone. It never ceases to amaze me peoples attitude toward developers who do all of this for us, in their free time, for FREE!! I mean, really?
BlueCop: Thanks for everything you have done for us. If you don't mind, I would love an invite as well. I have never posted in this thread as I have never had an issue with this plug-in (well, any of your work actually) but feel free to look at my other posts. I'm not a troll and exhaust all options before bothering a dev for help. Either way, again, I thank you.

Oh no [lack of proper emoticon to express myself]!? These were the last great plugins in the English language going on XBMC...all the others worth having are either crippled or dunzo. It may be a good time to go underground, BC, with a wave of Boxee refugees likely making their way this way - adding to the burden of support From me and the many XBMC setups I support for my friends and family, I'll echo those that have begged for you to reconsider, BC. Regardless, all of your work is deserving of Media Center/Cable Cutting HOF status and when someone writes the history of this period in rebellion against the industries that are thwarting the promise of digital distrubtion to the living room...you should certainly be in it -- Hey, that's a great idea for an eBook [light bulb emoticon]. All the best to you!
I don't know what it takes to get an invite to this private distribution, but if it means opening millions of chocolate bars in the hopes of landing a golden ticket...consider me Veruca Salt.
Peace, XBMC brethren!

Honestly your addons have been one of the very few things that make xbmc worth the effort for me. I had just been thinking of ending my satellite service based mainly on the presence of the free cable and hulu plugins! Thanks for all the work up to this point.

bad news to see the repo gone, how do I get on the private list...
